Loddon Valley Link


alanWelcome to the September edition of the Loddon Valley Link. You may have noticed a new name on the editorial team, Alan Seabrooke. I have lived in Sherfield on Loddon for 4 years now, and have recently retired after a long career in Engineering and Health & Safety. I will be sharing the editorial role with Jane following Simon’s resignation, and I look forward to getting involved with the communities and with the Loddon Link.

This month’s cover photo is the beautifully restored phone box at Church End. See the article on p28.

It is great to see the more events restarting after the lockdown. We have some important upcoming events you can read about in this edition. The ‘Sherfield Together Again’ event will take place on Saturday 4th September, and on the same day, will be the ‘Picnic in the Park’ on Sherfield Green.sep21 contents

We are delighted to present the 2021 Cover Photo competition results on pages 22 & 23. The entries were of such a high standard that the judging panel had to deliberate long and hard before deciding the winner, who is Chris Horton. A special mention to Ethan our youngest entrant, age 7 who came second, and Mike Ralph took 3rd.

I’m looking for your views on the Puzzle Pages. We added an extra page of puzzles during lockdown, and this month there is a ‘codeword’ puzzle, instead of the quick crossword. Let me know what puzzles you like, and whether you want to keep the second page of puzzles or go back to just one.

Keep your articles and photos coming. Remember you can support the Loddon Valley Link at www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/loddonvalleylink
